Cate’s academic program is designed to help students develop advanced critical and creative reasoning skills across all subject areas. Taught by faculty members who are passionate about their subjects and dedicated to ensuring that each student reaches his or her full potential, the coursework at Cate is both rigorous and engaging.
The Cate curriculum is designed to help students build their level of expertise in fundamental areas as they cultivate a sense of their own strengths and interests; then they are able to choose from a variety of electives—including numerous honors and Advanced Placement courses—as well as individually-designed research and directed studies projects. Class size at Cate typically averages twelve students, with opportunities throughout the day and evening for students to meet one-on-one with teachers. Coursework extends well beyond the confines of the schoolroom through outdoor learning, field trips, and study abroad opportunities.

"The small size of each class, in combination with the students and teachers, is why Cate is so special. In each and every class, your voice will never go unheard. There are eclectic opinions, and even if classmates can’t agree with one another, there is a high level of both tolerance and respect."
